I've been freelancing for over 4 years in PR and journalism, I'm now based in Liverpool, England. You can see a body of my work on Yelp.com and on Liverpool.com. When not reviewing or interviewing I write comedy for TV.

If you're looking for a traditional Irish bar outside of the hustle of Northbridge and the CBD, Subiaco is just a five minute train journey away. As well as housing some fine restaurants and wine bars, Subiaco has the great pub that is 'Paddy Maguires'.
This is a really warm and friendly pub, they serve good, honest pub food, quality beer and are a very friendly team. I would recommend Subiaco in general, as a great suburb for a night out, and would definitely recommend coming here for a pub dinner.
They have twelve local beers on tap and six international favourites. Local tipples include Carlton Mid, Swan Draught, Boags, Tooheys and Hahn. Internationals include Stella Atrois, Guinness, Kilkenny and Bulmers.
The menu includes tasting plates, soup and sandwich lunch deals, burgers, grills, and traditional pies. Both the food and the drink are reasonably priced, they have a good wine list and also cater for the less hungry with a range of bar snacks.
They have a range of entertainment across the week, with something to suit everybody. Mondays are pub quiz night, Tuesdays are WA Poker League night, Wednesdays house general Poker night and there's live music every Friday and Saturday. This is a gem located in the heart of a great suburb and worth a visit if you're visiting Perth.
